    Hey does anyone else love this song? I like this song more than all of the other Def Leppard songs combined! LOL! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    The lyrics in it are great too! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I think almost any guy can identify with wanting to do nothing sometimes, or sleeping in late and having their Dad telling them to wake up, or to mow the lawn.

    I love the video too! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    I liked the little change they made to the song at the concert last summer.

    "I suppose rock's out of the question"

    became

    "I suppose a blow job's out of the question"

    Um, it just fit the moment, you know? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    My favorite DL song changes often for me. I really like Animal and Photograph, but I also like Slang, Work it Out, and Guilty as well... Decisions, decisions!

    As far as DL vids go, LGR is very cool with all that computerized animation and all. But when it comes to favorite song(s), I'd have to give a nod toward Paper Sun from Euphoria, Slang, Women, Rock Rock Til You Drop, Love Bites and Have You Ever...

    I know...the last 2 are power-ballads, but they're also cool tunes.

    I gotta disagree, YR. I like it, but there's tons of Def Leppard songs I like better than this one.

    I've probably told this story, but when this song was first released I had a buddy who was a big Def Leppard fan. So he calls me up and tells me that he's heard the new DL song. I asked him what the name of the song was. He says, "I don't know, I think it's called 7 Day Weekend".

    I mean, the lyrics mention 7 Day Weekend a couple of times, and say Let's Get Rocked about a million times, how obvious should the title of the song been to him? I made fun of him for months about that.

    I haven't heard the song for ages. Actually, I was thinking the other day that I should pick up a copy of Hysteria sometime, even though I know Let's Get Rocked isn't on there.

    LOL! That's pretty funny Stuff, that should have put that line on the original. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    How were they live, did their harmonies sound as good live? I bought a live Queen tape recently and they sucked! Talk about relying on production.


    That's a funny story also Glenn. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    oh man, def leppard is my second favorite band. lets get rocked isn't their best i think but it's a cool tune. my favorites also change, but animal, photograph, and paper sun (holy shit is this song ever amazing, deserves more radio play than it gets) usually win it for me. i was stoked when i found a copy of on through the night at a music store one day, i bought it in a flash...

    Def Leppard was at the Missouri State Fair this past summer and while the music was dead on, Joe Elliot's vocals were WAY low. I guess they had been getting complaints about it being too loud at other shows. I say "rain on it" and crank it up! We're in the middle of a freakin' field!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Harmonies were OK, but probably utilized the old background tapes.

    But the best thing by far for the evening was the 2 sign language people, signing every Def Leppard song for a group of hearing impaired fans. I'm not making fun of deaf people at all, but my gosh!! Some of the mannerisms of these "signers" was almost obscene. Use your imagination as to what Pour Some Sugar On Me looked like...

    Give up? Imagine someone tugging or "milking" a giant udder nipple then rubbing the substance (I guess sugar in this case) all over their bodies as it cascaded down all over their hair, head and body! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] It was riveting, I tell ya!!!

    Yankee, where they played here they put on a hella good performance. It was Joe's birthday so they had to pull the "spontaneous" birthday cake and had us all sing to him [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    There was another comment that he made during the night that stuck out. He said something like:

    No, this isn't work, it's the most fun in the world. And I'm glad we survived the '90s *cheer* That's not such an easy thing to do as it sounds. Seems we went out of style for all that gloom. Well we're back in style now *cheer*

    Of course, the funny part was how everyone was singing, then when they played Slang, Paper Sun, and Promises I kind of felt like the only people singing were my friends and I [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    But with the right venue they sound excellent live. Actually, as I recall, LGR was the last song the played during the encore.

    I think all their songs and albums are good (yes even Slang). I saw them three times on their last tour and they sounded great everytime.

    I think my favorite Def Leppard song will always be Armageddon It. Cheesy I realize, (and dated sounding perhaps) but I just love it!
